Robotics summer camp for children in Navi Mumbai Vashi Koperkhairane Ghansoli
Which activities should children engage in the summer vacation?
This is one of the most burning questions in the minds of the parents. On one hand there are messages on social media which says that sending children to any activity in summer is like using chemicals for artificial ripening and coming in the way of development. On the other hand there are concerns relating to excessive use of gadgets and too much of screen time which is also counterproductive.
Being in children education for more than 4 years and being a parent for close to 14 years we believe that summer vacation is a refreshing time.
If parents are pushing children for tuitions (so that they get a head start when the school starts) it is like the artificial ripening. As parents we should utilize the summer vacation time to try out different experiences for children which otherwise are not possible during regular school. This is reflected in various activities planned at Making Champs.
Last year at IIT Mumbai Tech Fest, maximum crowd and participation was at Robowars, Flying Drones and different games played by the Robots. Children need to get exposed to what are the fundamentals of the exciting field.
